Hannity Now Calls for Moore to Drop Out

Fox News host Sean Hannity called for Roy Moore, the Republican candidate running for Alabama's open Senate seat, to withdraw from the race if he cannot clear up allegations that he sexually abused teenage girls when he was in his 30s. The change in Hannity's tune comes after several companies pulled their advertisements from his Fox News program and radio show over his coverage of the allegations of four women published in The Washington Post last week. On Sunday, a fifth woman came forward to say Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16 and he was in his 30s. ″For me, the judge has 24 hours," Hannity said Tuesday night. "He must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies that I just showed. You must remove any doubt. If he can't do that, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race." Moore has denied the women's allegations and has vowed to stay in the race, which will send Alabama voters to the polls Dec. 12.

Comments

Wonder if Hannity's 16 year old daughter heard her dad sticking up for an obvious creep and set him straight? Either that or Hannity realized he might go down on the Mooretanic and lose most of his sponsors if he continues to carry water for an obvious unrepentant pedophile and cretin, perfectly happy to add further trauma upon the women he's already victimized at least once almost 40 years ago.

Interesting turn of events...

Alabama GOP threatens retaliation for disloyalty to Moore
www.nbcnews.com

...Republicans in Washington may be abandoning Roy Moore by the droves. But in Alabama, the GOP has Moore's back and is threatening retribution against defectors.

The chairwoman of the Alabama Republican Party warned she's ready to enforce strict rules on party purity in the state's Senate race, even if it means kicking GOP candidates off the ballot in future elections.

"It would be a serious error for any current elected GOP official or candidate to publicly endorse another party's candidate, an independent, a third party or a write in candidate in a general election as well," Alabama GOP Chairwoman Terry Lathan told the Alabama Political Reporter. "I have heard of no GOP elected official or candidate that is even considering this option." ...

Lathan did not respond to requests for comment but the threat is being taken seriously in Alabama, since party rules -- as Lathan pointedly noted -- can be severe.

Alabama GOP bylaws give the party "the right to deny ballot access to a candidate for public office" to any elected official who "either publicly participated in the primary election of another political party or publicly supported a nominee of another political party." ...


#22 | Posted by LampLighter at 2017-11-15 11:54 AM

Since Moore used to be a Democrat, couldn't this rule be used against him?

#23 | Posted by visitor_ at 2017-11-15 12:02 PM

Later in the article, there was mention of a time limit for the rules to apply. Perhaps Mr Moore is beyond the expiration of the rules.

On Hannity's show tonight, the first 52 minutes were all on the sins of the Clintons.

Then he claimed he saved the Roy Moore commentary for the end...because he made the initial comment at the end last night, and this was "to be consistent in terms of where we put it in a program; it's important." As if he wasn't milking it for ratings the whole time.

Then he said "I don't rush to judgement."

He can't seem to open his mouth without lying.

#34 | Posted by Danforth at 2017-11-15 10:26 PM

By the end, Hannity hadn't called for him to drop out at all. Merely said the AL voters might need more time to get to the bottom of all this.

Yes the women told people about it 40 years ago and they have corroborated their stories.

[snip] "I don't know what was in my head when I took that picture, and it doesn't matter. There's no excuse," he said. "I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself. It isn't funny. It's completely inappropriate. It's obvious how Leeann would feel violated by that picture. And, what's more, I can see how millions of other women would feel violated by it -- women who have had similar experiences in their own lives, women who fear having those experiences, women who look up to me, women who have counted on me."

It will be tried in the court of public opinion.

And if Roy, the young girl toy boy, manages to con Alabamans into voting for him he will be subjected to a Senate Ethics Probe. Especially if the Republicans go after Al Franken (and Dear Lord I hope they do!).

Because, regardless of the outcome (which I think Al would easily survive)it would be worth it to take down a creep like Roy.
